03 Raw Footage Archive/ Mariannridge




Mariannridge was established in 1976 as a coloured township to relocate coloured families living in a around Durban. This was part of the implementation of the apartheid group areas act. The first families moved into the area in June 1976. The people came from Pinetown, Motala Farm, Clemont, Thornwood, Cato Manor, Umlaas and other areas. Initially 600 units of flats and semi-detached houses were built to accommodate coloured people. When residents arrived there was no infra-structure, no transport system, no access roads to flats no schools and no shops.
Over the years ownership and RDP houses were built. There is now a swimming pool,taxi rank, clinic, creche, fire station, library,community hall, churches, crisis centre, a mosque, primary and high school.
